Dr. Bell DC ,

Thanks for the truth

Many people in a business like push that business. Listening to your podcast it feels like your presenting a list of issues that should be addressed. Due to all the mindless ( sorry “ well intended”) rules put in place by government bodies and power companies ( not mindless just greedy) it’s a tough road to suss out.
I love how California is making everything electric and yet making electricity more difficult.

Podcast go-to

I have been thinking about Solar for a while but it wasn’t till I came across this podcast that I feel I’m more informed.

Jamie Duran is a great expert on Solar.

ElSteve9 ,

It has up-to-date information, but…

It does have up-to-date information, especially regarding California. However, they bring their political pessimism into most episodes. There is a LOT OF “well, I guess the government doesn’t want people in California anymore” stuff here. “Maybe they’re trying to chase people out.”

I’m not listening for amateur hour political theories (especially when they veer from policy to conspiracy theories), but expert level solar panel info. If they would focus, it would be much less frustrating.
